Ontarians encouraged to carpool to work, school this week

BT Toronto | posted Monday, Feb 5th, 2018

The province’s transit agency is encouraging users to share a ride to work and school this week as part of carpool week.

Smart Commute — the annual campaign led by Metrolinx – was launched on Monday and runs until Sunday.

The program encourages people to carpool and see how much they can save by driving to work, school or an event with at least one other person.

Officials say carpoolers can reduce their costs considerably by sharing the drive to work.

The average cost of owning and operating a vehicle in Canada is more than $10,000 a year. They also say that if two people share a 50-kilometre total commute five days a week, they will each save about $54 in gas alone in one month.
